chest. (You could also use a basket or a dish, whatever you have.) As I
show the treasure chest filled with gold coins, I will ask: What would you

You have learned many things about our Savior, Jesus
- How does learning these things make you feel? The
good feeling inside is the Spirit telling you that these things are
true. That is your testimony. That testimony will help you all your
life. It is the most precious thing you can have.
Let's all sing the song we have been
learning. I Believe in Christ.
- As we sing this song today, can
you sing it with great emotion.
- Can you sing it as if you are
bearing your testimony.
- Can you imagine that Jesus is
listening to you sing your testimony of Him.
- Imagine how happy He is to know
you have a testimony.
Sing: I Believe in Christ
I have a testimony of Jesus Christ. I know He is God's
Son, that He loves me very much and that He Suffered and died for my sins. If
I repent I can live with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ again. This
testimony helps me feel peace when even when there is trouble all around me. I
hope you will treasure your testimony. A testimony of Jesus Christ is your
most valuable treasure. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ,
